  • RSNA Board of Directors Report

    March 01, 2013

    At meetings during RSNA 2012, the RSNA Board of Directors looked forward to an exciting new year of developments for the Society, including new products and collaborations.

    RSNA Education Going Mobile

    Mid-2013 will see the launch of a new learning management system that will make RSNA education content available on mobile devices, in response to member demand. In addition, in accordance with changes to American Board of Radiology Maintenance of Certification requirements, RSNA education content will qualify as “self-assessment CME.”

    Also new in RSNA’s education offerings are two more quality certificates. Practitioners who earn all four quality certificates and complete a capstone project will receive advanced certification in quality. More information about all of RSNA’s science and education programs can be found at RSNA.org/Science_and_Education.aspx.

    Image Share Expands

    RSNA has signed a second contract with the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) to continue developing RSNA Image Share, a secure network that lets patients take control of their medical imaging records and electronically share them with their physicians. Already in use at five sites, RSNA Image Share will be expanded to another 40 sites over the term of the new contract. The new NIBIB contract will also enable development of new features such as data mining for comparative effectiveness research.

    Among RSNA’s other informatics efforts is the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE®) initiative, which recently held its 15th Connectathon. (See Page 20 for details.) Go to RSNA.org/Informatics.aspx to learn more about RSNA Image Share, IHE and the other ways in which RSNA is helping lead the way in radiologic technology.

    Radiology Cares

    RSNA’s new campaign to encourage and facilitate radiologists’ meaningful engagement in the patient experience, called Radiology Cares, was launched at RSNA 2012. Join the more than 300 radiology professionals who have taken the Radiology Cares pledge, and watch for the next phase of the campaign at RadiologyCares.org.

    Collaborations Fuel Progress

    RSNA values the contributions it is able to make to the specialty in partnership with other organizations. Read more on Page 1 about RSNA’s continued commitment, along with the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, to support the expansion of imaging physics residencies. Among other collaborations to be continued in 2013 are those with the Interamerican College of Radiology and the European Society of Radiology to offer special content during the RSNA annual meeting.

    Partnerships are vital to the mission of the RSNA Research & Education Foundation as well. New this year are two co-sponsored awards—an Education Scholar Grant cosponsored with the Association of University Radiologists (AUR) and a Research Scholar Grant in collaboration with the Foundation of the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR). RSNA also thanks Mallinckrodt and Agfa HealthCare for their new multi-year commitments as corporate partners of the Foundation. Find out more at RSNA.org/Foundation.

    RSNA 2013: The Power of Partnership

    Plans are already under way for RSNA’s 99th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting. Among the most significant developments is the relocation of the Lakeside Learning Center to Hall D, Level 3 of the Lakeside Center. As a result, all technical exhibits will be housed in Hall A (South Building) and Hall B (North Building).

    I’m pleased to report that RSNA membership now tops 51,000, with members from 136 countries around the globe. I, along with my colleagues on the RSNA Board of Directors, look forward to helping fulfill RSNA’s mission to serve the specialty throughout the coming year.
